The world is going further into debt because everyone is buying Apple products.

Perhaps Apple should run the world then. They could declutter and simplify things that are just way too complicated right now. Hold on…maybe they already DO run the world in a more subtle way… look at the youth market. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

Yah, because the status quo is working so well. Didn't Steve Jobs have a private conference with Barack Obama a couple of items? I'm sure he must have passed along some ideas on how He would redesign the economy.

Yep, it's called tech support. When you're the President of the United States of America, you don't just walk into an Apple Store and talk to the Mac Genius, you get Steve Jobs to come to you.

I'd imagine they have a special red iPhone set aside for such a purpose, even to get Mr. Jobs' views from the great beyond. If anyone could have figured out how to do that, Steve Jobs would be the guy.

Only problem is, Barack Obama seems pretty tied to his Blackberry...

He might use a BlackBerry, but he's been seen using an iPad and a MacBook Pro, too.

19K worth of Mac products (and that's not counting the more current models in the house that weren't on the list) ...translates to a thoroughly depressing $600K+ in stock.

I'm the idiot who decided NOT to buy Apple stock when it dropped to $88 a few years ago.
